Don’t think we have ever missed a year of Archibald price at Art Gallery of NSW. The biggest event for artists every year.
Out of coincidence the guide tour was on at 3 pm. I didn’t realize what a huge different it makes with a guide tour. The details of exhibition was able to introduced by such experiences guide.
Art gallery also has a podcast specially to Archibald price that you will be able to listen and check out the exhibitions at the same time.
Definitely worth going. Going at 3-5 pm is such a good idea too. You will be able to have some coffee after before catch up with Art after hour on Wednesday at the gallery.
This year the winner is Yvonne Coppersmith. I love how she oirtray the gaze of self portrait. 97 years since Archibald price started there were only ever 7 female winner. Go and see it!
